Picture Coding Symposium (PCS) is an international forum devoted
specifically to advancements in visual data coding. Since 1969, PCS has
provided the meeting place for the visual coding community: industry,
research, academia and users. The 26th PCS will be held in Lisbon,
Portugal, on 7-9 November 2007.

The day before, 6 November, a Workshop on Recent Advances in
Distributed Video Coding will be organized (free registration at In this workshop, recent
developments on distributed video coding will be presented by the most
prominent experts in the field.

The 16th International Packet Video Workshop will be held in Lausanne,
Switzerland, on 12-13 November 2007.


Topics of interest for submissions include, but are not limited to:

- Coding of still and moving pictures
- Content-based and object-based coding
- Scalable video coding
- Coding of multiview video and 3D graphics
- Modeling and synthetic coding
- Virtual/augmented reality and telepresence
- Coding for mobile, IP and sensor networks
- High fidelity visual data processing and coding
- Analysis for coding and adaptation
- Transcoding and transmoding
- Joint audio and visual processing and coding
- Subjective and objective quality assessment metrics and methods
- Error robustness, resilience and concealment
- Coding and indexing for database applications
- Protection and integrity of visual data
- Persistent association of information to visual data
